The dealership will be renamed St. Pete Mitsubishi and moved to Seminole, FL.

TKO Group recently bought Crown Mitsubishi in St. Petersburg, FL, from Crown Automotive Group, a move announced in a news release by Performance Brokerage Services, which advised on the sale.

The Mitsubishi dealership will be relocated to 8350 Park Blvd. North in Seminole, FL, and will be renamed St. Pete Mitsubishi.

Crown Automotive Group was established in 1969 as a Pontiac dealership in St. Petersburg. Founder Dwayne Hawkins built up the business from a run-down, one-car showroom into one of the largest privately-owned dealership groups in the nation. He was succeeded by his son, Kevin Hawkins.

Crown Automotive Group has funded several Habitat for Humanity homes in Pinellas County; packaged hundreds of thousands of meals for St. Petersburg Free Clinic, Florida Dream Center and Pinellas County Schools; supports Moffitt Cancer Foundation and All Children's Hospital; and donates to numerous other nonprofits.
